Re: 16-bit 625Mbaud XGMII
I agree with Andy. We've done ASIC designs with the 622MHz OIF interface
and timing is rather tough. The 312M is much easier.

Jaimie: you need to count package pins, not signal I/Os.
Your 625 MHz XGMII using LVDS differential signalling
requires 76 pins, which is the same pincost as the
312.5 MHz XGMII using single-ended drivers.
In addition, you would need to run at least part of
your logic at the 625 MHz which is significantly
more difficult to implement than staying with a
clock frequency of 312.5 MHz.
